Product Description:

2 LPs on 1 CD: EVERYBODY LOVES A CLOWN (1965)/SHE'S JUST MY STYLE (1966).
Producers: Snuff Garrett, Gary Lewis, Dave Pell.
Recorded at United/Western Studios, Hollywood, California. Originally released on United Artists. Includes liner notes by Dawn Eden.
This two-LPs-on-one CD compilation from Collectables was previously available directly from Capitol, and it's worth owning for the 12 tracks off of She's Just My Style, which was the best record that Gary Lewis & the Playboys ever cut. The digital remastering brings out the hard rocking sound on those cuts and especially on the guitars, and it is truly bracing. Apart from "Sha La La" and "Dreamin'," the first dozen tracks on this disc are pretty forgettable, if not downright dire -- only hardcore Lewis fans need concern themselves with the other ten tracks off of Everybody Loves a Clown -- but this is the easiest way to get those 12 hot rocking cuts off of She's Just My Style. Ideally, one starts the CD player at track ten and enjoys it from there on. ~ Bruce Eder

Rating 5.0 Everybody Loves A Clown/She's Just My Style Music Lover: from Texas City -- May, 4, 2006

This is a great double album on 1 CD deal! There are many cover versions of other artists songs from the time period, but they are done well and offoer some interesting interpretations. I have several of Gary Lewis and the Playboys albums on vinyl, and it's great that they are being re-released on CD. I highly recommend this CD if you are fan of the group or if you just enjoy good music from the mid-sixties!!
